(Witness) Inquest12 Dec 1873Letitia Ursella Brisbane witnessed the Inquest of Agnes Brisbane on 12 Dec 1873; 1873/356 Female. Agnes BRISBANE Cause of death: Accidental shooting; Location of inquest: Echuca; Date of inquest: 12 Dec 1873.
Transcript of depositions: John Brisbane on his oath saith, I am a Farmer + Storekeeper + Post Office Master residing at Wharparilla Store in Torumbarry.
I was in Echuca yesterday and returned home about dark. I had tea with deceased, my late wife, deceased and I went into the store together. She said "put that gun away I'll light the lamp". I took up the gun from the corner, and carried it in a horizontal position. The gun produced is the same, the hammer was resting on the cap, the muzzle of the gun was pointing in the direction of where my wife was standing at the time. I came round the corner of the counter. I felt the gun catch against something and instantly there was an explosion. The gun was charged with possum shot. I think, no one, I think age of deceased was 51 years, we were married nearly 21 years and have no family. We were living in the place since April. She fell instantly at the discharge. She did not light the lamp. I could see her easily it was not dark. I knew the gun was loaded. I fired one of the barrells the day before. She never spoke after falling. There was no one but deceased + myself at the time in the house, the girl (Letitia) was within hearing distance. I called her, she then came in she was about 40 or 50 yards distant toward the stockyard. I held the gun in front of the hammer, I told the girl to run and tell Mrs Brown to come over. John Trewin is a neighbour of mine and went for the police. We had no disagreement after my return home. The girl came home with the cows while we were at tea. She (deceased) had her tea before, but said she would have a cup with me. Letitia was at home when I arrived. My cart upset at Echuca the front bar was broken I told deceased of it and she said nothing I was home about half an hour before the accident. Letitia returned home with the cows soon after I arrived. Deceased stood with her right side toward me. I have seen the body lying in the adjoining room and identify it as that of my late wife.

Letitia Brisbane on her oath saith, I am living with Mr Brisbane residing at Torrumbarry Store. I always looked to them as my father + mother but am only adopted by them. I remember yesterday evening I was milking the cows in the yard and heard a gun go off. I could hear anyone call from where I was. Mr Brisbane called me as I came across + I met him at the door. I went in and asked Pa what happened. He said the gun went off + shot mother. I ran up to the body deceased appeared to be quite dead.I then went for Mr Brown leaving Mr Brisbane with deceased he told to go for Mr Brown. I went for Mr Trewin and his son came over. I did not again go into the room where deceased lay that night I believed her quite dead when I went for Mr Brown. I did not know of any disagreement between deceased and her husband Mr Brisbane was sober I never knew him to drink I have seen the body lying in the adjoining room and identify it as that of Mrs Brisbane.
